Recipe Ingredients for Gnocchi with an international twist

1 lb baking potatoes, peeled and cut into 2-inch chunks
1/2 cup egg beaters
2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
1 tsp salt
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth
10 T smart balance
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice

Recipe Directions for Gnocchi with an international twist

  1. In medium saucepan, cover potatoes and bring to a boil. Simmer over moderately high heat until potatoes are tender, about 8 minutes. Drain potatoes, then return them to the pan; shake over moderately high heat until dry. Working over a large baking sheet, rice the hot potatoes in an even layer. In small bowl, whisk egg yolks with lemon zest, 1 tsp of olive oil, and salt. Pour mixture over potatoes. Sprinkle flour over the potatoes and stir gently just until a dough forms. Gently roll dough into four 1/2- -inch-thick ropes. Using a sharp knife, cut each rope into 1/2-inch pieces. Roll each piece against the tines of a fork to make ridges. Transfer gnocchi to baking sheet; cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate.

  2. In small saucepan, bring chicken broth to a simmer. Remove from heat and whisk in 1 stick of butter, a few pieces at a time, until sauce is creamy. Warm sauce on low heat if necessary. Stir in lemon juice and season with salt. In large pot of boiling salted water, cook gnocchi until they rise to the surface, then cook them for 1 minute longer. Gently drain gnocchi, toss with remaining 2 tbsp olive oil, and transfer to baking sheet until cool. In large nonstick skillet, melt 1 tbsp of butter. Add half of the gnocchi and cook in a single layer over high heat until browned on the bottom, 2 minutes. Transfer to large bowl and repeat with remaining 1 tbsp of butter and gnocchi.

  3. Reheat sauce; pour over gnocchi and fold gently with a rubber spatula until they are evenly coated. Transfer to a platter and garnish with chives.
